How Do I Fix an Imperfect Deed in Maryland?

Imperfect deeds can impact a title and, consequently, your rights of ownership. Common errors that render a deed imperfect include insufficient legal descriptions, incorrect or misspelled names, missing witnesses, or the lack of a notary stamp.


While the original deed in Maryland cannot be amended, a confirmatory deed can be executed and recorded, providing full legal status on the title. A confirmatory deed contains an explanation and correction of the error or errors in the original deed. These deeds are most commonly created to amend minor errors.


If your deed requires more substantive changes, like adding a name to the title or changing the legal property description, a new deed of conveyance will likely be required.
